Welcome to Contemporary Gymnastics
The purpose of Contemporary Gymnastics Academy is to train, develop and support our gymnasts in their pursuit of competitive excellence, in a positive and challenging environment by experienced, skilled and professional coaches
A commitment to provide a safe, fun and supportive arena where we will develop the gymnast's strength, muscle structure, body and mind to enhance their self-confidence, self-esteem, discipline and personal character.
To promote a lifelong involvement with the sport of gymnastics.
Although a recently formed gymnastics club, the coaches and director of CGA have many years experience in providing high level gymnastics programs which are challenging and rewarding for both our gymnasts and their families.
We strive to ensure our gymnasts achieve their personal best and assist them to be committed, responsible, respectful, and unique individuals.
CGA offers your son or daughter the opportunity to compete in international, state and national competitions. The majority of our gymnasts compete in the Nationals Program. The National Levels is a program working to the Australian Gymnastics Federation set requirements. Gymnasts with extraordinary potential at a young age have the opportunity to attend training at the international level program.
Gymnastics demands total dedication, complete commitment, and a desire to be the best you can be. The athletic skills and physical fitness stays long after competitive gymnastics has ended, but it is the mental strength that is the most important and stays with you longer than the ability to do the splits.
The leading gymnastics researcher in the world in 1999 was Dr. Bill Sands. He explains Why Gymnastics in a good article on the USA Gymnastics Technique website. Here is a summary:
Gymnastics helps people learn to work hard for objectives that can take years to achieve.
Gymnasts are very good at both static and dynamic balance.
Gymnasts learn early to fall without injuring themselves.
Gymnasts are among the smallest and lightest of athletes.
Drug abuse in gymnastics, while not unknown, is extremely limited
Gymnasts tend to do very well in school.
Gym nastics provides the opportunity to learn about teamwork sportsmanship, fair play, dedication, patience, dedication, perseverance, and planning.
Gymnastics is a reasonably safe sport.
Gymnasts are among the most flexible of all athletes.
"Not only do the gymnast acquire the ability to focus on an activity while blocking out what's going on around them, my daughter learned valuable time-management skills that carried over into all her activities and school.
Gymnasts are among the strongest, pound for pound, of all the Olympic athletes.
Focusing and time-management are the two main advantages I give parents for the sport. This is over and above the self-satisfaction, self-esteem, team building abilities, and other obvious reasons."
(C. Hill, gymnastics parent, 1998)
Gymnastics is a terrific sport for young people. Gymnastics can provide opportunities for physical development, character development, and education that are hard to find anywhere else.
